How do you "control temps?


O.K.... this winter my wife kept turning our themostat up, from 70 deg. to 74 deg. " Im cold."

Now its summer, and shes turning the stat down from 76 deg. to 70 deg. "Im hot."

What the heck!!

If I lock out the stat...Im a "control" freak!!

Does anyone make a small hvac unit I can hook up to her butt...maybe powered by inconsistency.

Dont say anything to her about this...I want to surprise her.

the stat is only sensing the area around it and usually is mounted near the return air grill.if you move away from the stat and into uoter rooms loads on the walls winter/summer can make it seem lacking.is your attic vented with a fan if you have one.keep the sun from directly hitting the floor or walls by tweeking your shades or blinds that eats up the cool air that is going into the rooms

I kinda liked the power source idea.
